Building Details

Despite originating in the Georgian period Curry’s Cottage does not conform to formal Georgian style or proportions, rather it is of a rural vernacular nature. The reason for this is that the cottage was built from materials available locally, bog oak for the roof structure, mud for walls, rye for thatching.

The cottage is a simple single storey dwelling with whitewashed mud walls, curved at the corners, with small windows, a half door and a deep overhanging hipped, thatched roof.


The materials used in the building of Curry’s Cottage are renewable, natural, biodegradable and non – toxic meaning they do not damage the local environment, creating a very ‘green’ building!
